Chatterbox + Sewalong Giveaway

Quilt market prep is in full swing over here but I'm taking a little break to release a new pattern. It's called Chatterbox and was made using Momo's new line, Flying Colors.

The Chatterbox quilt can be made using a Moda Layer Cake (or Jelly Roll + 1 FQ combo) and is easy and quick to piece. I haven't had a second to make up a sample yet, so digital images it is.

The pattern is in my shop and is available in PDF or paper
I'm a little sad I haven't been able to make this quilt up yet so I'm thinking I should offer up a special prize for those of you who can beat me to it. So here's what I'm thinking:
  • THE PRIZE: 1 person will win a USPS medium flat rate box stuffed full of surprise scraps from my new line that is being revealed next month at quilt market. It is literally a box full of sunshine. I may also throw in advanced copies of the new patterns from the group...  
  • HOW TO ENTER: Make a Chatterbox quilt! Or at least get started. Post a picture of your progress in Instagram and tag me (@lellaboutique) and make sure to use the hashtag #CHATTERBOXSEWALONG (NOTE: If your IG account is private, send me a DM with a screen shot.) 
  • DEADLINE: Well, I don't think I'll get around to making my quilt for a few more weeks but I think I can have it done right before quilt market. So let's say October 20th. If you can post a picture of your progress before October 20th, I'll look through the hashtag #CHATTERBOXSEWALONG and randomly select a winner.

Vintage Picnic {Fresh Cut Version}

In my last post, I introduced my new Vintage Picnic quilt pattern in Gooseberry fabric. (It's an exclusive for Fat Quarter Shop and can be purchased here.) Well guess what?! I made another one. (Yes, I really did love making it that much.) This time around, however, I used Basic Grey's Fresh Cut fabric from Moda Fabrics. Early this year I found myself buying TONS of it, and decided "it made sense" to redo my daughter's room with it. So logical--any bets as to when I'll get an itch to redecorate again?
I made some nice big pillows to match and found the rest of her sheets/bedding from Target. It's a good thing most of it is pretty neutral--it will make it that much easier when I feel the urge to do some redecorating. Here is a digital image of the fabrics plugged in:

(I particularly adore the texture added by using the raindrop print for the sashing and border. It was a little extra work because of the unidirectional pattern but SO worth it.)
Of course, it was only fitting to get a picture of my girl with her quilt.
I think she likes it.
